Year 4-6, Waverley Park School. Teacher, Sharon Witheford.
As part of an enrichment programme at Waverley Park School, children were given the opportunity to visually express themselves through photography.
The group met once a week for 2 terms to learn tips on how to take a good photo using a digital camera. Workshops covered how to use a digital camera and it's settings, rule of thirds, the 4 elements to taking a good photo - people, line, colour and light. The children used the school environment to practice these skills taught and then they went to Queens Park to see what they could see through the eye of the camera. This is what they found.
At the end of the unit we held an exhibition where families came to view the photos. The children used the app Aurasma to give an explanation about their photo.
"When I took my photo I put the camera right in front of the chains so they became the focus. I like how my background is black and the white colour of the chains really stand out".
